Aerosoft Announces Development of Airbus Series for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Aerosoft Airbus Microsoft Flight Simulator

Whilst the news seemed inevitable that Aerosoft would bring their series of Airbus aircraft to the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator, it has today been confirmed that development has entered the very early stages. It is confirmed that the A320/A321, A318/A319 and the A330 will all make an appearance in the new simulator at some point in the future.

Shared by Mathijs Kok on the forums, three people are currently working on the systems for the aircraft and over the next few months that team will grow to six. Whilst Aerosoft are welcoming comments and feedback, it must be made clear that they are in the very early stages of development and this post serves more as a piece of information rather than a preview and feature blowout. The team aren’t likely going to have much to share for some time, but to avoid any doubt, Aerosoft will be bringing the series of planes to the new simulator.

It is also confirmed that these aircraft will continue to focus on day-to-day operations for the aircraft and will not feature systems that very rarely happen in real-world operations. It was also confirmed that these aircraft are completely new builds and will feature many new pieces of technology thanks to the new engine of Microsoft Flight Simulator. The preview shared is of some very early work and modelling and texturing hasn’t really started yet.

It must be absolutely stressed that development on the Airbus series does not mean work on the CRJ or Twin Otter has stopped or delayed, as both aircraft will come before the Airbus series.

You can follow the full thread on the Aerosoft forums, but Mathijs has made it clear that right now replies will be limited to when there is new information. He does, however, want constructive feedback to help shape the future of the development.

FS2Crew Releases Flight Crew A320 (Button Control)

FS2Crew Flight Crew A320 Trailer For Microsoft Flight Simulator

Update: Some pieces of information in the original version of this article contained outdated information. We’ve rectified this and apologize for this error.

FS2Crew, the well-known add-on developer for P3D and FSX, released Flight Crew A320 (Button Control). With their first product for the new MSFS, they want to ease the job of the virtual Airbus A320 pilot. The add-on has a brand new user interface, where you can use your keyboard buttons or joystick to interact with your virtual flight crew in the cabin and on the ground. Voice control is not included in the current release, but FS2Crew doesn’t rule out a future version, maybe even as a new add-on.

You can expect checklist execution, specific Airbus flows for the captain and first officer, for Pilot Flying and Pilot Monitoring and numerous interactions between the ground and cabin crews and the pilots.

Flight Crew A320 (Button Control) was designed for the default Airbus A320 in MSFS, but can be used with any Airbus in P3D and FSX, keeping in mind some limitations apply in the different simulators. The product is easy to learn.
